Wplus9 Dec./Jan. Release: Day 2

Welcome back for Day 2 of Wplus9 Design's December/January Release week, y'all!  I hope your weeks have gotten off to a great start!  We're back today to share a little from a new stamp set, called Valentine Wishes, and its coordinating die, and I've thrown in a bitty phrase from yesterday's Fresh Cut Wreaths as well.  Check it out!
I started this card by trimming the bottom of a piece of teal, polka dot, patterned paper with a strip of brown, damask, patterned paper; framing them with a piece of Marina Mist cardstock; machine stitching, with brown-threaded, zig-zag stitches, around their combined edges and between their connection; and adhering it to the Kraft, cardstock, card face.  I then secured a vintage, moss-colored, journaling card, with foam tape, in the center of the card face and topped it with the stamped, in Marina Mist, on an Oatmeal, cardstock die cut, wreath, which I filled in with the stamped, in Jet Black ink, partial, "Love You still" sentiment, before anchoring it with the stamped, in Crumb Cake ink, on another Oatmeal, cardstock die cut, banner, which was stamped, in Chocolate Chip ink, with the remaining "ALWAYS HAVE, ALWAYS WILL" sentiment.
A bit of Chocolate Chip, grosgrain ribbon, tied in a knot and embellished with a pearl button, laced with a hemp twine bow, tops the journaling card.
To complete the look, I stamped an Oatmeal, cardstock, tag die cut, in Crumb Cake and Jet Black inks, with the leafy image and "for you" phrase; thread it with a length of hemp twine; and tucked it under the embellished, ribbon knot.
Hope you're loving what you're seeing so far, because I'm having so much fun showing these beauties off ;)!  Be sure to stop by the designers' blog links below to check out lots more Valentine Wishes inspiration, as well to leave a comment on the Wplus9 Design Blog for your chance to win it and its coordinating die.  Until tomorrow, thanks so much for stopping by, and be blessed!
